In this talk, Prof. Planey will present forthcoming work from two projects with an emphasis on their theoretical and methodological grounding probing connections between health and time.
Arrianna Marie Planey is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management in the University of North Carolina Gillings School of Global Public Health and a Fellow in the Cecil G. Sheps Center for Health Services Research. She is a health/medical geographer with expertise in measuring and conceptualizing health care access, health and healthcare equity, and spatial epidemiology. Her research and teaching focuses include the application of spatial analytic/statistical/epidemiologic methods to study interactions between health(care) policies, healthcare access and utilization and underlying, population-level health inequities, and identify points of intervention at structural- and system-levels.
Dr. Planey’s ongoing research includes collaborative studies of birth outcomes (preterm birth and low birth weight) among Black immigrants in segregated neighborhoods, spatial mismatch by race and gender among workers in US metro areas, and the disparate effects of rural hospital closures on acute care access.
Lunch will be served starting at 11:45am.
